Please replace the ??? with your data!

  • URL to the FORM: http://???
  • The browser used: ???
  • cforms version: ???
  • Your Wordpress version: ???

Just a quick question i am having problems locating the answer to, how do i apply different css settings to different forms.  i.e. one form is in the sidebar one set of css, but then i want another form in the main area – but it is automatically applying the sidebar css to the secondary form?

I am sure i am missing something simple here – but couldn't stand looking anymore;-)

any help greatly appreciated._

Hi Oliver,

You have done a great job with this plugin, I want to use it but I'm having the same problem as Ann.

I have read the FAQ and still haven't found the answer. I do not want to change CSS to the same form, I simply want to use 2 different templates (both from the presets in the /styling directory). For instance, on the contact page I want to use shiny_style.css and on the single article page I want to use grass_green.css (for a t.a.f. form). If I go to the Styling tab of the plugin and change the theme, it automatically affects all forms on my site, no matter what theme I use for each. I am not CSS-challenged, I just want to use your presets, they are perfect for me. Is there any way to do that?

Browser: Firefox


cforms version: 8.7

Wordpress version: 2.5.1

Thanks for your time

L.e.: I just read another topic on a deeper page and it shed a different understanding on the code you used as example in your FAQ second question. I'll try to use that and let you know if I get any problems. Thanks again.

2 days of your time? I find your arrogance interesting especially in light of the lack of WWW skills. How much time do you think WP developers put it in to provide you with free software and free support?? Your 2 days are ludicrous.

ASAP enough?

Worked like a charm!

Thanks Oliver,

ps: whoever complains about spending time tweaking FREE software that took HOURS to make is an ASSHOLE. If you have a time constraint you are probably doing it for MONEY so please shut up and educate yourself.

hello, I am having a hard time finding the answer to the question about how to use multiple styles?

Has anyone figured out how to use multiple styles throughout the pages? Am I missing something?

Disable the styles for Cforms. Install WP Post Styling plugin and then copy and paste the CSS from the template you want into that page or post where you are using the form. That's one way anyway. There are probably cleaner ways of doing it.

Solution: Learn CSS -.-

use #cformsXform  .class {} , replace X with the number of the form u want to change, and class respectively
